Problem with ListField

Hi everyone,


when user click in a ListField i want to update an image of a row but i didn't get it. 


My purpose is simulate a checkbox, it means that by default in the end of the row there is an unchecked image and when user click there is a checked image.

I tried to overwrite drawListRow of ListFieldCallback but i don't know how update the row when user click to change the unchecked image with the checked image.


Any help is welcome, thanks very much!!

Re: Problem with ListField


Inside drawListRow() use the Graphics and ListField object and do the following:


static boolean boolean checkedflag = false;

  void drawListRow(ListField listField, Graphics graphics, int index, int y, int width){


  if (listField.getSelectedIndex() != -1)) {  //i.e a row gets selected


                      checkedFlag = false;





                      checkedFlag = true;


The above code may require some fine tuning!...but graphics.drawBitmap() will work just fine.

Re: Problem with ListField

Thanks very much to both.

Simon, I had already looked the example but i ddidn´t see the most important line: invalidate()  

This call repaint the selected row Smiley Happy


Dsheel, geSelectedIndex() isn't a good condition because when focus is on row, this return true and I only want to change the image when row is pressed. So it is necessary create a class like the example class, ChecklistData.


To sum up, apologize for my english and thanks veye much!!
